Change For Good - Centre for Attachment, Trauma & Dissociation
I am a UKCP Psychotherapist and Child Psychotherapist who specialises in work around difficulties associated with attachment, trauma and dissociative disorders. I am a member of various societies focusing on trauma ESTD, ISSTD, ESSTS, UKTG and have undertaken training specifically in relation to trauma disorders e.g. EMDR, TF-CBT etc.
“Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone.”
My work focuses on attaining positive change to allow clients to attain and maximise their potential across all areas in life such are work, relationships, health and education etc.
What are my areas of expertise
I see clients for a range of presenting issues such as:
- Type I (single experience) and Type II (complex trauma) traumatic experiences
- Dissociative Disorders
- Attachment related difficulties
- Addiction e.g. sexual addiction or compulsive behaviour
- Stress management
- Relationships problems
Expert witness and consultancy services
I also accept instructions for expert witness work in civil, criminal and family court work relating to trauma, abuse and neglect. This harnesses the training I have undertaken in clinical assessment of children and young people.
I present nationally and internationally on the subject of trauma and attachment and therefore I can also be contracted to provide training and consultancy for Local Authorities, Providers of children's services and families.
Please don't hesitate to contact me to discuss any matter which may bring you to counselling.
